Seller Comments:

8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. {Original edition: ISBN 2-84414-113-7, L'Association, Paris.}. "Armed with a smuggled radio and a copy of 1984, Delisle could only explore Pyongyang and its countryside in the company of his translator and a guide. But among the statues, portraits and propaganda of leaders Kim Il-Sung and his son Kim Jong-Il-the world's only Communist dynasty-Delisle was able to observe more than was intended of the cultrure and lives of the few North Koreans he encountered. His astute and wry musings on life in the autere and grim regime form the basis of this remarkable graphic novel. PYONGYANG is an informative, personal, and accessible look at an enigmatic country." This book is profusely illustrated with art drawings.

From the Publisher

A westerner''s visit into North Korea, told in the form of a graphic novel.
Famously referred to as one of the "Axis of Evil" countries, North Korea remains one of the most secretive and mysterious nations in the world today. In early 2001 cartoonist Guy Delisle became one of the few Westerners to be allowed access to the fortresslike country. While living in the nation''s capital for two months on a work visa for a French film animation company, Delisle observed what he was allowed to see of the culture and lives of the few North Koreans he encountered; his findings form the basis of this remarkable graphic novel. "Pyongyang "is an informative, personal, and accessible look at a dangerous and enigmatic country.
